I logged on to Ebay, searched for basses from the same company my guitar is from, and found one... and 2 mins later I bought it! tongue.gif tongue.gif tongue.gif

I've never been that impulsive in my life. It is a 6 string, with an ugly head. But that doesn't matter. I've always wanted a bass, and now I've (soon) got one! laugh.gif


And the not so pretty head:

I am pretty sure it's BEADGC... not too sure though.

It's some german company I think it is.

Happy NBD. And yeah, it's nice to have a bass, although shredding on the lower frets is a bit tricky.

Or I could just install my EZdrummer and Drumkit from Hell again and get back in the game of working with that. I put it aside some time back, as I didn't feel like I had time for it. After reinstalling everything on my computer I never got as far as to that.

Besides that I also have my keyboard/digital piano. So I could in theory start working a bit more on such things.

I actually played some bass in music classes back in elementary school. I suddenly got an urge to play bass again some years ago.
